My daughter asked me to “help” her make a checker board for her boyfriend for a Christmas present. Not feeling comfortable with letting her run a table saw by herself, I figured I better do the “heavy lifting”, so to speak! Made the same way as an end grain cutting board. Cherry and maple, wrapped with 1” wide cherry. I made a simple box of walnut to hold the pieces. She wanted a Bible verse engraved on the sides and it turned out better than I expected. Now, I could not end this post without a huge “Thank You” to Pat Harris. I was in need of a drum sander and Pat was gracious enough to help me out. He is a talented LJ who has a heart of gold. This project would not have turned out the way it did had it not been for his help. Thank You Pat!!!
